  1. It's DAY 1 of the MLB season, gang. We've got a handful of games today, and I wanted to make a thread where we can talk baseball all season long with play by play: Here's a guide to Opening Day: https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-2018-opening-day-games-and-schedule-guide/c-269482334 First and foremost if you are a new fan, or you're getting back into the swing of things (pun intended) after the offseason, you must remember the golden rule: you don't really need to watch every game. Many football fans, and even some basketball and hockey fans, find this to be a challenge. They're used to setting aside a few nights a week to watch their team, and they can watch all the games. Baseball isn't like that. For the next six months, your team will only have 21 days where they won't be playing a game. And some of the games they play will start as early as 11am, others will end after 1am. If you miss a game it's okay, odds are there's another one tomorrow. If you miss a week, no big deal, hell if you get busy for a few months and aren't able to watch your team, that's not an issue, because you can still follow your team. Which reminds me. Baseball is a game to be followed. In the old days, probably with your dad, it meant picking up the morning paper and checking the box scores. Now it means being able to have a final score texted/tweeted/messaged/emailed/what-evered to you the minute the game ends, or rolling over in bed when you can't sleep and grabbing your phone to check the West Coast scores. It means being able to check ESPN in the morning to see any breaking news from across the league, or catch a story you missed. We live in a time where you can go to MLB.com and get a recap of every game from last night in less than 10 minutes. Honestly, baseball was made to be consumed, and the technology age makes it easier than ever, whether you want to spend hours every day pouring over stats and analysis, or 15 seconds to see how your team and their playoff rivals did today. There's lots of good stories and matchups today to start the season. That said, let's PLAY BALL!
  2. Fair warning here. This post has nothing to do with the Mvp 18 mod or the MLB2k18 mod since both of them do not exist and it does not deal with where you can download one game or the other or support for your pirated copy because you can't get something to work. Finally this is not the place to ask where something is in the download section or to make a request for a cyberface for a rookie who had a good year in A ball. What this post is about is baseball. There, I said it. That should get rid of 98% of the people here and they'll wander off waiting for the next cyberface of Shohei Ohtani to come out because four of them aren't enough. MONDAY, OCTOBER 2ND, 1978, UPSTATE NEW YORK: For a day in early October it was all you could ask for. You never knew how the weather would turn when this month began. It wasn't uncommon to see cold, rainy days or overcast ones or like the one we had that day forty year ago. It was like the weather did not know what to do. Did it want to hang on and provide us with one more day of summer or give us a glimpse of what was to come in the form of cooler temperatures? Turns out we got both. It was a day to wear a sweater out, but not a heavy one and normally it was a day that someone would bring out a football and we'd occupy ourselves for a few hours scoring touchdowns against each another. But not on this day. It was a school day and that is where I was when the game for the American League's Eastern division began. My mother did not let me stay home to watch the game, not appreciating the significance of it. Maybe she did me a favor because if I had stayed home I would have not known what to do before the 2:30 p.m. start. School work suffered because this game was all everyone was talking about from the first class in the morning until we got out. I still consider myself lucky that day that I did not have to take any tests because every answer I would have given would have been "Ron Guidry." After what seemed like an entire month, school was let out and I rode the bus home. My mother, repentant for her sin of not letting me remain at home, met me at the bus stop and drove me home. Driving home with her that day I noticed something odd. No one, and I mean no one, was outside. You'd expect to see this on a cold winter day with everyone locked away inside but not on a gorgeous day like this. When I got home it was already 1 - 0 Boston and Mike Torrez was not even breaking a sweat. For the first six innings the Yankees couldn't touch him as they were only able to collect two hits. Then in the bottom of the sixth the Red Sox pushed across another run and with Torrez looking that good the 2 - 0 lead they had appeared to be too much. It was at this point in the game that I can now look back and laugh at but when it was going on I was doing anything but. Relatives began calling my house asking my parents if I was ok. Fortunately the phone calls stopped at the top of the seventh. As long as I live I will never get tired of hearing Bill White say "deep to left...Yastrzemski will not get it...it's a home run!" Every time it is on TV I stop to watch it. I view it on youtube over and over. But on that day, October 2nd, 1978, I did not hear it even though I saw Bucky Dent's home run sail over that thirty-seven foot eyesore. Back in those days baseball telecasts were a lot different. The call that everyone always hears is from the WPIX channel 11 broadcast that was shown in the New York city area. Phil Rizzuto, Frank Messer and Bill White alternated on radio and TV and it was White's good fortune that he was in the TV booth when the seventh inning rolled around. The broadcast that I and the rest of the country heard was from ABC TV and Keith Jackson and Don Drysdale were in the booth. I like White's call a lot better but Jackson's version had the same result so I had no complaints. The ABC network covered baseball very well back then because along with NBC TV they covered and promoted the game while FOX uses all nine innings to plug their shows. Going into the bottom of the eighth the Yankees held on to a 5 - 2 lead but on that little league field a three run lead is as safe as sticking your finger in a power socket. By the time the eighth inning was in the books the lead was cut to 5 - 4 and Rich Gossage, New York's high-priced free agent signing from the winter before was struggling to hold on. That's when the phone calls started again. Is he ok? Tell him it's just a game. When my mother was out of the room I unplugged the phone from the socket so I could panic and pace in peace during the ninth inning. Remember, no cell phones back then! The bottom of the ninth inning was going to let me know if I was going to have a good or bad winter. With one out Rick Burleson and Jerry Remy reached base. Boston has always had players like this, guys you'd like to take out hunting and then leave in the woods. Jim Rice then flew out to right field and Burleson slithered his way over to third base. He then remained there all winter after Gossage got Carl Yastrzemski to pop out to third baseman Graig Nettles. It was that good of a game. It was that exciting. And as the years have marched on I consider myself lucky to have witnessed that when it took place. Russell Earl "Bucky" Dent. Forever a Yankee hero. Just like that a 2 - 0 deficit is now a 3 - 2 lead. Another angle of Dent being greeted at home plate. Reggie Jackson got a hold of one in the 8th. Graig Nettles catches the final out of the game. Yankees 5, Red Sox 4. The Yankees mob each other by the third base dugout.
  3. hi guys how are you! I come here to see if anyone is interested in making an mvp mod, it would be 2018, with whom do I tell?
  4. I did not have a chance to do this today so I'll do it now. Very easy, just your opinion. There's no right or wrong answer. I have three questions for you and to make it easy you can cut and paste the questions in your own response. 1. What American League team do you want to see lose most of all if your team does not make it? 2. What National League team do you want to see lose most of all if your team does not make it? 3. What team are you pulling for to win this year's World Series? Ok, here are my answers. 1. What American League team do you want to see lose most of all if your team does not make it? The Boston Red Sox. Tell me you didn't see that coming. 2. What National League team do you want to see lose most of all if your team does not make it? The Washington Nationals 3. What team are you pulling for to win this year's World Series? The New York Yankees.
  5. I am not a historical expert in baseball and I don't pretend to be so let me put that assumption to rest. The people that work down in Cooperstown are the real pros here. All I know is what I have read in books and what I have read there I have retained because I have a very good memory. I've read a lot of baseball books in my life and I especially like the ones that deal with the history of the game. Since I was a kid and right up until this day I have made a habit of reading many baseball books over the winter. That was the best way I knew how to make the winter months go by until opening day. The following is what I learned from those books concerning KC's post in the chatbox that he wrote last night. Babe Ruth was in a sense blackballed from a managerial job because of two reasons. First, because of how he conducted himself as a player. The complaint was how could Ruth be expected to manage a ballclub when he could not even manage himself? Secondly and just as important it was because of the interference of his wife Claire, who was from all accounts that I have read an overbearing and controlling person. Ruth was given the opportunity to manage the Yankees top minor league farm team in Newark, New Jersey but his wife talked him out of it saying that "Babe Ruth does not ride busses" and that Ty Cobb never had to manage in the minor leagues so why should he? I came to the conclusion in all the things that I read that they were more worried about Ruth's wife and the trouble she'd bring than Ruth himself since they've been dealing with Ruth and his exploits since he came up in 1914. Ruth's name was mentioned in a few big-league manager spots but nothing really came of it. His best chance however came in Philadelphia where Connie Mack was considering stepping down as the Athletics manager. Right here was the closest Ruth got to a manager's job in the big leagues but in the end Mack decided not to hire him because he felt Ruth's wife would interfere too much. Before the 1935 season Ruth was sold to the Boston Braves and he was told that he would be the team's vice president and assistant manager to Bill McKetchnie along with being a player. Ruth quickly realized that he was a vice president and assistant manager in name only and by the end of May of that year the situation was so bad for him that he voluntarily retired. His final chance wearing a big-league uniform was in 1938 when Larry McPhail hired him to coach first base for the Dodgers. McPhail at least was honest with Ruth when he informed him that he wasn't going to be considered for the manager's spot if current manager Burleigh Grimes retired. (Grimes did just that and Leo Durocher was named manager for 1939 and remained the Brooklyn manager until 1948.) Ruth's job was to coach first, take batting practice, hit some home runs and wave to the fans. Durocher, after being named manager, did not retain Ruth's services as a coach and after 1938 he was out of baseball for good. This is what I know about Ruth being blackballed. Now how he felt about black players was in all accounts positive. Back in those days after the season was completed the players would go on barnstorming tours to make extra money. Many times Ruth would play against some of the best black ballplayers of the day and he constantly said they were just as good as the white players. Ruth used to be teased by opposing players who accused him of having some black roots in him. When the book Tarzan of the Apes came out he was called that by the opposition. First he thought it was a compliment until someone took him aside and clued him in. Pretty soon around the league that stopped. He was also called "Nigg** Lips" because of the size of his lips. That was another reason why the other bench jockeys from the other seven teams in the league swore he was part black, a fact that Ruth himself denied repeatedly. That being said I have never read that he did not get a manager's job because baseball was afraid that he would recruit them to be on his team. I am not saying this never happened, but what I am saying is that this was not what baseball owners were worried about concerning Ruth. Why? Because of three words. Kenesaw Mountain Landis. Landis did not want black players in baseball. Not under his watch. Bill Veeck (former Indians, Browns, White Sox and then later on White Sox again owner) learned that the hard way. A few years before Landis died the Phillies were for sale and Veeck almost bought them. He had the money in place and an unwritten agreement in place to buy the team. Here is where Veeck made his mistake. He informed Landis that once he became owner of the team he was going to load his roster with Negro League players. Before Veeck arrived in Philadelphia to finalize things however he learned that while on his way there the National League took over the team (similar to what MLB did to the Expos during their final years) until a new owner could be found. It was not until four year later that Veeck became an owner when he purchased the Cleveland Indians in 1946. The very next year he signed Larry Doby as the first black player in the American League. He was able to do this since Landis died in 1944. I hope this clears some things up. It's obvious Ruth wasn't given much of a chance after his playing days were done.
  6. I still try to get hi-res photos for my albums but it has been harder to do since they really can not be found anymore. But the other day when I was looking for some I ran across this one and it cracked me up. A home run was hit into the Camden Yards bleachers and the faces that these fans made when the ball came near them are priceless. Look at the guy wearing the orange Orioles shirt for example. Enjoy!
  7. Hello Guys, I am using a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and I already have DirectX 12 installed in my computer, but I sill get message that says "MVP Baseball 2005 requires DirectX 9 and hardware graphics acceleration"; what do you guys think I should do?
  8. Hello, I'm once again stunned by the modders here and all their knowledge about everything. The slightest problem you have can be solved if you dig deep enough in the forums, and that's amazing. But now I've stumbled upon a problem that I can't find the answer to. I recently got MVP baseball 15 up and running, after hours of work, but I wasn't satisfied with the overlay, pitching meter and mechanics but I really loved the roster. So I tried to download several 2015 rosters with no success... I deleted my old .dat files and replaced them with the new ones. I tried using TiT to extract the files. After that I start the game, the rosters are correct, even though everyone's missing their picture, but after loading the game it crashes halfway. I've upgraded the mvp file to 4 GB, tried every admin/compatibility mode checked and unchecked read only but I can't get it to work. I figured it might have something to do with cyberfaces but I tried to use someone's cyberface for 2015 but that didn't make any difference and no photos were shown anyway. Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong? I can play the original 2005, the TC 2015 and the TC 1974 mod with no problems at all. My specs are: Win 10 (which shouldn't be the problem since all the other versions work), gtx 1080, Intel i7-6700 4Ghx, 16 ram, 64 bit. If you need more info just ask. Thanks again for the help!

  10. I'm looking for classic retro Uniforms for MLB 2k11. Especially San Diego Padres 1991 pinstripes jerseys and Baltimore Orioles 1979 Orange jerseys. Thanks to anyone who can help out!
  11. I was looking through some old baseball photo galleries that I made just a few years back and 99% of them I never posted anywhere. In August of 2011 I got 2, 094 alone! I was lucky because I got them from a website that posted them every day but now they don't and the result is I don't get any more photos. ESPN does post photos after every major league game but you can not resize a lot of them to make them look presentable. Here is a random one from the Philadelphia game tonight. It's a small size but when you try to make it a little bigger it looks awful. It is a photo I would not even consider saving. Here it is just a little bit bigger. Now do you see what I mean? Here is an example of the photos I used to be able to get on a daily basis. The quality is so much better. If anyone knows where to find good photos of today's MLB let me know. Thanks.
